Hallo fellow translators.
As some of you may have noticed Jono Bacon, the Ubuntu Community
Manager, has started a project called the Ubuntu Accomplishments System.
The general idea is that users can be awarded trophies when they
complete a particular accomplishment. This purpose of this system is to
give new users a sense of accomplishment, when they are contributing to
the community, and at the same time (and most importantly) make it easy
for them to discover and learn about the different ways they can
contribute. You can read more about the project on Jono's blog
Jono is hard at work on the implementation, but what is missing now is
accomplishments. We think it could be great if there were some really
good translation accomplishments right from the beginning and therefore
we have started a brainstorm on this wiki-page to find potential
accomplishments. Please feel free to add any ideas for translation
related accomplishments you can think of and also we would like some
feedback on the suggestions, here on the email list.
A note for when you are coming up with suggestions, is that it is
important that there is something of a learning experience in the
accomplishments. Therefore, doing a lot of a particular task, e.g. like
translating a string, is not a good accomplishment for this system (even
though it is of course still an important contribution.) You can read
more about good and bad accomplishments on Jono's blog.
